As an offshoot of the Sustainability Summit Series and COE’s Poverty Studies initiatives, Dr. Emily Akerson of JMU IIHHS invited Drs. Tim Thomas, Joy Myers, Stephanie Wasta, and Teresa Harris to observe the poverty simulation provided to students in the College of Health and Behavioral Sciences. Based on our review of the simulation, Tim Thomas worked with Emily Akerson to offer a poverty simulation for students in the COE. Elementary Education and Reading students from Drs. Shin Ji Kang and Smita Mathur’s classes participated in the simulation.
